Goalie coach is just another excuse for Fleury. Replacing Meloche ain't gonna make a difference. If they believed that Fleury was still "the guy" he'd be playing tonight. He's on his way out.

It doesn't matter who they play if the team plays defense like they did last game. Blown coverage, coasting, forcing low percentage passes- all of it. That said, I'd rather they went with Fleury.

The only way I see Fleury staying here is if they make a wholesale change in philosophy and that starts with a coaching change. If they bring in a Dave Tippet-type of coach that will commit to playing a much stronger defensive game. Is there another Dave Tippett out there?

Under 88% in playoffs over a four year period now. Four years. He's done.

When he's mentally off it's obvious. Right from the start last night, overplaying everything. Look at the play close to the end of the second period. Loose puck going along the ice half a meter right of the goal, he's all over it like a socker goalie on a penalty shot.

Fleury hasn't forgotten how to play in the regular season, so it's not quite SBD.
